These top-notch criminal defense lawyers regularly defend individuals charged with marijuana offenses, and they frequently provide pro bono assistance in important or unusual cases which may set favorable legal precedent or otherwise impact public policy. A few of the many victories NORML lawyers have won include:
Securing the right of some patients to use marijuana medicinally, via the defense of medical necessity.
Halting government use of dangerous herbicides (e.g., paraquat) for marijuana eradication.
Protecting marijuana smokers from double jeopardy.
Protecting people from unreasonable searches and seizures.
Limiting the National Guard's participation in enforcing marijuana prohibition.
Securing access to parks and other public spaces for rallies, protests and concerts.
Limiting law enforcement officers' ability to conduct random and warrantless searches of passenger buses.
Limiting helicopter overflights and infrared searches.
Securing the return of patients' seized marijuana.
